Understanding PowerLine AV Network Security
The PowerLine AV Mini Adapter must use an identical encryption key as the network. The default encryption key for each PowerLine AV Mini Adapter
is the HomePlugAV. All PowerLine AV Mini Adapters with a default encryption key can communicate with each other.
It is recommended to create a private encryption key for network security purpose. The private encryption key allows you to protect your network
from unauthorized access via the PowerLine network. To create a private encryption key instead of the default encryption key, please follow the
1. PowerLine AV Mini Adapter
Press the Simple Connect button on the DHP-310AV for 2 seconds. The Power LED will start blinking after you release the button.
The adapter will create a private, randomly generated encryption key that each PowerLine AV Mini Adapter will use.
2. Additional Adapters in the Existing PowerLine Network
Within 2 minutes of pushing the Simple Connect button on the PowerLine AV Mini Adapter, press the Simple Connect button
on the additional adapter in your existing PowerLine network for 2 seconds. The Power LED will start blinking after you release
Note: Both Simple Connect buttons must be pressed within 2 minutes.
3. PowerLine Network
After the network security setup steps, your PowerLine network will be securely configured with the same network encryption
key. The PowerLine AV Mini adapters will memorize the security settings even if they are unplugged.
Note: To change the private encryption key, please reset the adapter back to its default value by pressing the Reset button for 1 second
and then follow the security setup procedure above.
